Laura Mercier Cosmetics' Bloggers' Event2:00 PM
If there is one particular brand that focuses on creating that flawless face, it is no other than Laura Mercier Cosmetics. Known for equipping every woman to achieve that incredibly even, smooth and natural-looking complexion, it doesn't come as a surprise that this brand has been the top choice of supermodels and Hollywood actresses like Claudia Schiffer, Julia Ormond, Christy Turlington, Meryll Streep, Susan Sarandon, Linda Evangelista and the ever incomparable Madonna. I am no celebrity but I swear by their Oil Free Tinted Moisturizer with SPF20 and their skin line. However, I feel that I still haven't given this brand that attention it truly deserves. Fortunately, I was given that chance to know the brand a bit more through their Bloggers' Event which was held last Wednesday at East Cafe, Rustan's Makati.

The event started with a brief introduction about the brand. Shortly after, Qua, the brand's make up artist was introduced.
He demonstrated how to achieve that "flawless face:Laura Mercier style". We were graced by a very lovely model, Sarah of Fashion Eggplant!
First is the Foundation Primer, which creates a perfectly even surface to keep skin smooth. The Foundation is then applied as the second step for added moisture and to build-up coverage. Third is the much coveted Secret Camouflage and Concealer which magically hides unwanted skin imperfections like blemishes, discolorations and the ever present under eye circles. Last step is to apply the Setting Powder to keep the make up in place while giving a sheer look even after applying layers of powder!
And while Qua was busy finishing Sarah's make up, some items from their Holiday 2011 Collection were presented to us.
